Good evening,
Thanks for the quick reply. I will keep an eye out. An HVSS equipped Sherman will be final one in my Sherman platoon.
regards,
Painless

Looks splendid cannedheat, :thumbup:
I sent another message to Andrew haya yesterday afternoon regarding the conflicting info on the working suspension,
he said he couldn't check as he had only one left so I ordered it anyway and it should be with me by midweek, :thumbup:
hope that I am not disappointed with it.

regards john. :wave:

Good afternoon all, my fury arrived today quickly delivered from Andrew haya, I spent 30 mins dicking about with the
transmitter before giving up with it and setting it up with a flysky fsi6, very happy with it and pleased I bought it, the
suspension does pivot and compress, looking forward to upgrading it in the future :thumbup:

Good morning, John!
Thanks for answering the suspension question! The next big question on peoples minds is "How Much did it cost?"

Good morning,
John, thank you very much! That is not a bad price at all. ;o) I have a spare TK-22 set up for the MATO M36-B1. I wonder what the RTR could be delivered for without the MFU and receiver? Thanks again!
regards,

I think it would be a good seller without the electrics allowing you do fit whatever you choose, I was lucky I bought a few
spare flyskys at a good price, the TX it came with is rubbish and only fit for the bin :thumbdown: the price includes vat,
am I right in saying in the states you can buy it from the uk less vat although the shipping may be expensive.

John!
Yessir, no VAT but as Dave from Forgebear always cautions, full scale tanks are expensive to ship. May be time to hit up Ali Express ;o)
regards and thanks again!

When importing don't forget import duty (20%) vat and a handling charge as well which is about £18.00 :thumbdown:

Bloody nice! I was considering doing something similar to mine since I have a spare Trumpy/WSN T-34/85 that I've been planning to convert as a PLA tank from the Korean War. Would look great alongside each other & I love getting my neighbors worked up over stuff like this.

Heard today that Hooben has their new 1/16 Tiger in production. Zimmerit will be an available option along with metal upgrades once they are ready. After seeing the proto last month, I plan to get one.

Any idea if that Tiger will be more accurate/detailed than HL or others are?

Haven't yet seen the final product but prototype that was on Hooben's conference table I saw looked very close in terms of detail to the Tiger (P) sitting beside it so should be better than HL & expect it to be a smaller version of their 1/10 late Tiger. Feng told a week ago its now in production and soon available.
